The Columbus Blue Jackets and the Vancouver Canucks meet in NHL action from the Rogers Arena on Friday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Vancouver is a -180 home favorite while Columbus is a +160 road underdog with a total set at 6.5 goals.


For Columbus, Carson Meyer is out until late February with an oblique injury while Vancouver’s injury list features Ethan Bear who is questionable for this game with a personal matter while William Lockwood is out indefinitely with a concussion. Thatcher Demko is out until early February with a lower body injury and Tucker Poolman and Tanner Pearson are both out for the season.

Matchup History

Columbus’ 4-3 OT win back on October 18th, 2022, made it three straight wins for the home team and 5 wins in their last 6 meetings against Vancouver.


Columbus is 20-47 in their last 67 games overall and 20-52 in their last 72 road games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win. Vancouver is 2-8 in their last 10 games overall and 6-21 in their last 27 games against the Eastern Conference while the over is 6-2-4 in their last 12 games overall.


I’m backing the over here. I don’t trust the goaltending on either side in this one, as Vancouver got shelled by Seattle last time out and I just don’t trust them even against the Columbus Blue Jackets but I haven’t trusted Columbus for much of anything this season either. I think this could easily be a 4-3 game at the very least, so give me the over here.
